Hilarious Spin by The Weekly Standard on Donald Trump’s Veepstakes


The Republican National Convention is just about a week away and, aside from wondering who besides those in Trump’s family will speak, people throughout the country are asking themselves one question.

Who will Donald Trump select to be his vice-presidential running mate?

There are four names that have been put in the mix as strong possibilities. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and Indiana Governor Mike Pence, both Republicans, met with Trump today in Indiana. Republican New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was also supposedly given vetting papers. Now, you might be wondering why I am stipulating that these guys are Republicans since we are talking about the presumptive GOP nominee, right?

The reason is the fourth contender, who is reportedly under consideration, is Democrat retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn.

Republican Senator Jeff Sessions has also been mentioned as a possibility, though not as strongly in recent news as the others.

In leading up to Trump’s veepstakes pick, The Weekly Standard has an article titled:

The Trump VP Selection Show

Who will survive long enough to get a rose and take their talents to Washington?

But that’s not the funniest part. The funniest part is the tweet that was sent out to promote the story, complete with a fawning Trump looking at his possible matches with a rose between them, reminiscent of The Bachelor.

Since the Trump campaign itself promised that this GOP convention would be the biggest reality show ever, this take on the veepstakes is hilariously perfect.

So, who do you think will win Trump’s rose?
